The Rockets made a great pick in the 2006 NBA Draft, when they selected shooting guard Rudy Gay with the #8 overall pick. Then the big mistake came as they dealt Gay along with forward Stromile Swift to the Vancouver Grizzlies for SG/SF Shane Battier. Battier played in 348 games (340 starts) in his five years with the Rockets and he averaged 34.2 minutes, 8.8 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game. Battier is still #5 in Rockets’ history in three pointers made (576). Battier was a decent player for the Rockets, but Rudy Gay is one of the better SG/SF in the NBA right now.
